Very pleasant and kind treatment of Shakira. Very nice and cosy typical moroccan riad located in the heart of the medina, and very quiet as well. Our room was spectacular, so spacious and with a very nice typical moroccan design. Breakfast was delicious!! We would come back for sure!!

It's an incredible historical "riad" and an authentic experience as you'll be fully immersed in the cultural heritage of the country. Carefully restored, it depicts Arabic design and preserves Moroccan architecture at its best. The typical wooden doors and windows are incredible, the bathrooms and the internal balconies are lovely! Located in the middle of Rabat's old town, it is... More

We had a peaceful and pleasant stay for our first night in Morocco. It's the best value Riad we had the entire trip. We were met at the airport and our driver led us through the Rabat Medina to the Riad, (expensive but a service recommended if you, like us, have not experienced the complex labyrinth of a Medina before)....

Despite only staying one night, my girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at this Riad. If you're trying to find the Riad at night, it might be a little dark as you walk through the alleys of the Medina, but once you arrive, you'll feel right at home. From the very beginning Amine was welcoming, and explained to us... More

We really feel it was home away home. It's stylish riad with the perfect mix of maroccan design. We enjoyed the comfort and hospitality. Also it was nice to meet owners of riad. With its location in peaceful area, the riad is just 5 minutes walk to Kasbah Oudayas. Highly recommended!

We went back to the Riad in September this year, following an enjoyable stay in 2013. This time we stayed for 5 nights. Everything was as perfect as the previous year. Amine was on form and ensured we had a good stay.

Amine is a fantastic host! He made us feel like we were home, and helped us in such a lot of ways, showing us on the map the most important must see things in Rabat, and also what to buy in the souk and where! Moreover, the riad is amazing, with is roof where is served breakfast and from where... More

Based on information from Amine the manager, cook, guide, assistant and anything else you could want or need at a riad the beautiful Marhaba is about 300 years old and was fully restored 5 years ago in all it's ornate Moorish detail. Our room on the 3rd. floor was very large and well furnished. The bathroom was good by Moroccan... More

We stayed two nights in a two roomed suite. The riad has a faded elegance which has a certain charm. The on-site manger, Amin, is very, very helpful and did everything to make us welcome. Our room overlooked the central couryard but our son's room (which was a sitting room) overlooked the street and was very noisey even though this... More

We agree with others who say that Amine makes this a five star place to stay. This was our first time in Morocco and Riad Marhaba was a great place to begin our journey. To get to the Riad from the rail station, we followed the detailed instructions sent to us by the owner Fred. We'd recommend printing a copy... More
